Just be careful that you keep track of the spring and tiny little washer and o-ring!

Installation(and removal later) is easy, the difficult part is getting the OEM screw out! If you don't have one of those fancy fuel screw adjusters or can't get a screwdriver in there, you'll have to tilt the carby, which requires removing the seat, tank, upper engine brackets and hot-start. Try to get a small screw driver up there! Removing the hot-start can be a good thing 'cause it's important to keep it greased up inside to prevent it from siezing.

^^^Thats what I did. If you find it to hard to turn by hand use a small end wrench that you can fit over the end of the bit and use that to help you turn it to get it out. It can be kind of a pain but its well worth it and you only have to do it once because you wont be going back to the stock one :applause:
